It really doesn't even make since to have the DAL version of this lens with a weather sealed body and pentaprism finder. The AL II version at least has quick shift. Even the K200d came with the DA 18-55 AL II as a kit lens. The WR wasn't available when the K200d was released, but I bet if it was the WR would have been the kit lens.
It seems to be offered with WR here in Norway. Here's one of several examples:

But Norwegians are hearty - enjoying biting wind, hail that is driven sideways at a measurable fraction of the speed of light, and snow that drifts to the top of the Holmenkollbakken.

No wimpy glass for you!

We're not Norvegians, but it seems we'll be also able to get the WR kit:
Aparat Foto DSLR Pentax K30 Black + SMC DA 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 WR / Aparate Foto DSLR
And - I bet - so does the rest of Europe

They probably noticed the Romanian winter of 2011/2012 and decided you need the Arctic Kit [tm];-)

Could be; but now we need some heat resistant cameras. And lots of ice! (to keep the beer in)
